ABC Membatalkan ‘The Chew’, Menggantikannya dengan Waktu Tambahan ‘Good Morning America’


Selepas tujuh musim, ABC telah membatalkan rancangan bicara yang berfokus pada makanan The Chew. Ia akan diganti dengan tambahan jam Selamat Pagi Amerika, yang dilaporkan menarik lebih banyak penonton dan lebih murah untuk dihasilkan, menurut Deadline. Keputusan itu dibuat hanya beberapa bulan setelah bekas rakan tuan rumah Mario Batali pergi The Chew berikutan tuduhan gangguan seksual dari beberapa bekas pekerja dan profesional restoran lain.

Selamat Pagi Amerika, yang bermula pada pukul 8 pagi dan dihoskan oleh Robin Roberts, George Stephanopoulos, dan Michael Strahan, kini akan berjalan selama tiga jam. Tapi sebab Hidup Bersama Kelly & Ryan ditayangkan pada pukul 10 pagi dan Pandangan disiarkan pada pukul 11 ​​pagi, jam ketiga dari Selamat Pagi Amerika akan ditayangkan pada waktu tengah hari.

The Chew tuan rumah Clinton Kelly, Michael Symon, dan Carla Hall menyiarkan reaksi mereka ke media sosial setelah mendengar berita itu.

"Terima kasih atas semua pesanan baik anda. Ya, The Chew dibatalkan. Hebat sekali, tapi itu TV biz, ”tulis Kelly dalam catatan Facebook yang disukai lebih dari 44,000 kali. "Michael, Carla dan saya akan benar-benar ketinggalan membuat anda ketawa dan memberi inspirasi kepada anda untuk mencuba perkara baru setiap hari. Kami akan menghabiskan sisa musim ini dengan semangat yang kami dapat! Saya pasti kita akan membincangkannya pada rancangan esok. Sekali lagi, terima kasih dari lubuk hati saya. "

Setelah membaca sekitar 14.000 komen dari peminat yang tidak puas hati, dia menambahkan, "Saya menangis sambil membaca semua komen ini. Saya merasa terhormat kerana telah menjadi sebahagian daripada hidup anda dan memberikan anda hanya satu senyuman sepanjang tujuh tahun terakhir. Jangan marah. Ini membuat saya lebih sedih. "

Symon juga membuat pernyataan di Facebook: "Seperti yang mungkin anda dengar sekarang, kami mendapat tahu hari ini adalah musim terakhir kami The Chew ... Saya hanya ingin mengucapkan terima kasih kepada semua orang yang tidak hanya terlibat dengan rancangan itu tetapi juga semua orang yang menonton setiap hari dan membenarkan kami untuk menghiburkan anda ... ini adalah jalan yang luar biasa dan kami semua menantikan perkara-perkara baru yang menyeronokkan! ... xoxo ... MS. "

Hall memilih untuk menangani situasi di Instagram, di mana dia menulis: “Saya sangat bersyukur untuk semua masa yang baik dan rakan-rakan luar biasa yang saya buat selama tujuh tahun terakhir di @abcthechew. Ini benar-benar menjadi perjalanan yang luar biasa. Saya menantikan pengembaraan baru! Apa yang akan datang? Nantikan! Ke depan dan ke atas! "

Daphne Oz, yang tampil di pertunjukan itu hingga musim panas lalu, belum memberikan komentar mengenai hal itu, dan juga Batali. Walaupun koki yang memalukan itu bersama-sama menjadi tuan rumah program ini dari awal tahun 2011 hingga keluar pada tahun 2017, dia mungkin terbaring rendah. Pemain berusia 57 tahun itu baru-baru ini dituduh mencabul dan memperkosa seorang wanita di restoran kelas atasnya di New York City, Babbo, pada tahun 2004.

Bagi hos pertunjukan yang ada sekarang, inilah yang diharapkan mereka akan mengadakan pertunjukan baru sebaik sahaja rancangan itu ditayangkan. Inilah yang harus mereka makan untuk sarapan untuk membantu setiap temu ramah pekerjaan.


Matt James dan Rachael Kirkconnell kembali bersama, tetapi dia 'ragu-ragu'

Bos ABC bertempur untuk menangani kejatuhan dari komen yang dibuat oleh wartawan & # 8220Good Morning America & # 8221, Amy Robach, yang terperangkap dalam mikrofon panas yang mendakwa tembaga rangkaian membatalkan wawancara dengan penuduh Jeffrey Epstein untuk menenangkan keluarga kerajaan.

Wartawan & # 8220GMA & # 8221 terdengar mengeluh bahawa dia menghabiskan tiga tahun untuk berusaha mendapatkan wawancara dengan Virginia Roberts Giuffre, yang menuduh dia dipaksa tidur dengan Putera Andrew sementara dia ditahan sebagai budak seks Epstein & # 8217.

Ketua berita ABC dengan pantas bergerak pada hari Selasa untuk meminta Robach mengeluarkan pernyataan, di mana dia mengundurkan tuntutan awalnya.

Penyiar itu mengatakan bahawa dia & # 8220 terperangkap dalam momen kekecewaan peribadi & # 8221 pada video, yang dikeluarkan oleh laman web konservatif Project Veritas Ahad dan dipercayai telah dirakam pada bulan Julai ini.

Dalam pernyataannya, Robach mengatakan bahawa dia & # 8220 tidak diingini & # 8221 bahawa wawancara dengan Giuffre, yang dirakam pada tahun 2015, tidak berjalan kerana gagal memenuhi piawaian pelaporan ABC & # 8217, sambil menegaskan bahawa dia tidak pernah diberitahu untuk berhenti melaporkan mengenai Skandal Epstein.

Sumber-sumber ABC memberitahu Halaman Enam Selasa bahawa terdapat & # 8220 kebenaran & # 8221 bahawa wawancara itu diadakan untuk pengadilan dengan para bangsawan, dan terutama, seperti yang dikatakan Robach di kamera, untuk mendapatkan wawancara dengan Putera William dan isteri Kate Middleton.

Sumber ABC mengatakan: & # 8220A banyak penyiar mungkin dapat berempati. Kita mesti menjalankan semua standard dan amalan masa lalu dan ada kalanya wawancara tidak dapat disiarkan.

& # 8220Kami memerlukan masa untuk mengesahkan perincian, dan kami tidak dapat mengesahkan banyak tuntutan Virginia & # 8217. & # 8221

Walau bagaimanapun, ini tidak menjawab mengapa ABC tidak menjalankan wawancara pada bila-bila masa selepas tahun 2015. Giuffre kini telah membuat tuntutannya kepada pelbagai media.

Pada bulan September, dia bersidang eksklusif dengan & # 8220Today & # 8221 sauh Savannah Guthrie di saingan NBC, menuduh bahawa dia melakukan hubungan seks dengan Putera Andrew berusia 17 tahun.

Raja, bekas sahabat Epstein, dengan keras menolak tuduhan itu, menyebutnya "palsu" dan "tanpa asas & # 8221.

"Dia menafikan bahawa itu pernah terjadi, dan dia akan terus menyangkal bahawa itu bahkan terjadi - tetapi dia tahu yang sebenarnya dan aku tahu yang sebenarnya," kata Giuffre kepada Guthrie, sambil menambahkan bahawa pangeran itu "penyalahguna, dia adalah peserta."

Pada bulan Jun, The Post melaporkan bahawa presiden berita ABC James Goldston duduk di meja Presiden Trump di samping Putera Charles dan Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, pada makan malam yang mewah di London.

Trump dan wanita pertama Melania melancarkan makan malam di kediaman Duta Besar AS Woody Johnson untuk membalas jamuan negara yang mewah di Istana Buckingham yang dihoskan oleh ratu.

Goldston, yang memiliki kewarganegaraan Amerika dan Britain berkembar dan berkahwin dengan penyiar BBC Laura Trevelyan, juga memperoleh undangan berprestij ke perjamuan negara - yang hanya mempunyai 170 orang tetamu.

Dalam komen yang diambil oleh Project Veritas, Robach dapat didengar berbicara dengan rakan sekerja yang tidak disebutkan namanya di sebuah video yang difilemkan secara rahsia tentang bagaimana dia menganggap wawancara Giuffre tergores akibat tekanan kerajaan.

& # 8220Saya menjalani temu ramah ini dengan Virginia Roberts. Kami tidak akan menyiarkannya, & ia didengar berkata. & # 8220 Pertama-tama, saya diberitahu, ‘Siapa Jeffrey Epstein?’ & # 8230 Kemudian istana mendapat tahu bahawa kami mempunyai semua tuduhannya mengenai Putera Andrew dan mengancam kami dengan sejuta cara yang berbeza. & # 8230 Kami sangat takut bahawa kami tidak dapat menemuramah Kate dan Will, jadi saya rasa ini juga dapat menghilangkan ceritanya. & # 8221

Jelas kecewa, Robach menambah: & # 8220 [Virginia] memberitahu saya semuanya & # 8230 Dia bersembunyi selama 12 tahun, kami meyakinkannya untuk keluar. Kami meyakinkannya untuk bercakap dengan kami. & # 8221

Robach juga mengatakan bahawa Giuffre menghubungkan Bill Clinton dan Alan Dershowitz dengan Epstein: & # 8220Tidak dapat dipercayai apa yang kita ada. Clinton. Kami mempunyai segalanya. Saya berusaha selama tiga tahun untuk tidak berjaya. & # 8221

Kedua-dua peguam Dershowitz & # 8211 Epstein & # 8217 & Clinton adalah penumpang jet peribadi Epstein & pameran log.

Giuffre - yang mendakwa dia dipinjamkan kepada peguam bomba untuk seks oleh Epstein - menuntut Dershowitz setelah dia secara terbuka mengecamnya sebagai "pembohong bersiri", "pembohong bersiri" dan "pelacur bersiri."

ABC mengatakan dalam satu kenyataan, & # 8220Pada masa itu, tidak semua pelaporan kami memenuhi standard kami untuk disiarkan, tetapi kami tidak pernah berhenti menyiasat kisah tersebut. Sejak kami mempunyai pasukan dalam penyiasatan ini dan banyak sumber yang didedikasikan untuknya. Hasil kerja itu menghasilkan dokumentari dua jam dan podcast 6 bahagian yang akan ditayangkan pada tahun baru. & # 8221

Robach, yang juga pelopor & # 822020/20 & # 8221, mengatakan dalam pernyataannya yang dikeluarkan pada hari Selasa bahawa dia tidak mengharapkan komennya disiarkan, sambil menambah: & # 8220Sebagai wartawan, kisah Epstein terus terungkap pada musim panas lalu, Saya terperangkap dalam keadaan kecewa. Saya kesal kerana wawancara penting yang saya lakukan dengan Virginia Roberts tidak disiarkan kerana kami tidak dapat memperoleh bukti yang cukup untuk memenuhi standard editorial ABC mengenai tuduhannya. Komen saya mengenai Putera Andrew dan tuduhannya bahawa dia pernah melihat Bill Clinton di pulau peribadi Epstein merujuk kepada apa yang dikatakan oleh Virginia Roberts dalam wawancara itu pada tahun 2015. Saya merujuk tuduhannya - bukan yang telah disahkan oleh ABC News melalui laporan kami. & # 8221

Robach meneruskan, & # 8220Wawancara itu sendiri, semasa saya kecewa ia tidak disiarkan, tidak memenuhi piawaian kami. Selama bertahun-tahun sejak tidak ada yang memberitahu saya atau pasukan untuk berhenti melaporkan Jeffrey Epstein, dan kami terus meneruskan kisah penting ini secara agresif. & # 8221

Dalam temu bual dengan NPR pada bulan Ogos, Giuffre mengatakan bahawa dia bingung mengapa wawancara 2015 dengan ABC tidak disiarkan. & # 8220Saya melihat wawancara ABC sebagai pengubah permainan yang berpotensi, & # 8221 katanya.

& # 8220Menampilkan ABC dengan jumlah penonton yang luas adalah kali pertama bagi saya untuk bersuara menentang pemerintah kerana pada dasarnya melihat cara lain dan menggambarkan kemarahan dan pengkhianatan yang dirasakan mangsa. & # 8221

Dershowitz memberitahu NPR bahawa dia menekan ABC untuk tidak menerbitkan wawancara itu.

Kejadian Robach berlaku setelah Ronan Farrow mendakwa ketua berita NBC enggan menyiarkan laporannya mengenai skandal Harvey Weinstein setelah bos filem yang memalukan itu mengadu kepada bos.

Project Veritas pada hari Selasa mengatakan bahawa video Robach disediakan oleh & # 8220an orang dalam ABC. & # 8221

Sumber ABC menekankan rangkaian yang terus dilaporkan di Epstein sebelum dan selepas temu ramah Robach & # 8217 dengan Giuffre.

Bos ABC bertempur untuk menangani kejatuhan dari komen yang dibuat oleh wartawan & # 8220Good Morning America & # 8221, Amy Robach, yang terperangkap dalam mikrofon panas yang mendakwa tembaga rangkaian membatalkan wawancara dengan penuduh Jeffrey Epstein untuk menenangkan keluarga kerajaan.

Wartawan & # 8220GMA & # 8221 terdengar mengeluh bahawa dia menghabiskan tiga tahun untuk berusaha mendapatkan wawancara dengan Virginia Roberts Giuffre, yang menuduh dia dipaksa tidur dengan Putera Andrew sementara dia ditahan sebagai budak seks Epstein & siaran.

Ketua berita ABC dengan pantas bergerak pada hari Selasa untuk meminta Robach mengeluarkan pernyataan, di mana dia mengundurkan tuntutan awalnya.

Penyiar itu mengatakan bahawa dia & # 8220 terperangkap dalam momen kekecewaan peribadi & # 8221 pada video, yang dikeluarkan oleh laman web konservatif Project Veritas Ahad dan dipercayai telah dirakam pada bulan Julai ini.

In her statement, Robach said she was “disappointed” that her interview with Giuffre, taped in 2015, did not run as it failed to meet ABC’s reporting standards, while insisting that she had never been told to stop reporting on the Epstein scandal.

ABC sources told Page Six Tuesday there was “zero truth” that the interview was held to court favor with the royals, and particularly, as Robach said on camera, to get an interview with Prince William and wife Kate Middleton.

An ABC source said: “A lot of broadcasters can probably empathize. We do have to run everything past standards and practices and there are times when interviews can’t air.

“We needed time to corroborate details, and we were unable to verify a lot of Virginia’s claims.”

This does not, however, answer why ABC did not run the interview at any time after 2015. Giuffre has now made her claims to a variety of media outlets.

In September, she sat down for an exclusive with “Today” anchor Savannah Guthrie on rival NBC, alleging that she had sex with Prince Andrew aged 17.

The royal, a former pal of Epstein, has vehemently denied the allegations, calling them “false” and “without foundation”.

“He denies that it ever happened, and he’s going to keep denying that it even happened — but he knows the truth and I know the truth,” Giuffre told Guthrie, adding that the prince was “an abuser, he was a participant.”

In June, The Post reported that ABC news president James Goldston sat at President Trump’s table alongside Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, at a glitzy dinner in London.

Trump and first lady Melania threw the dinner at US Ambassador Woody Johnson’s residence to reciprocate for a lavish state banquet at Buckingham Palace hosted by the queen.

Goldston, who has dual American and British citizenship and is married to BBC anchor Laura Trevelyan, also procured a prestigious invite to the state banquet — which only had 170 guests.

In the comments captured by Project Veritas, Robach can be heard talking to an unnamed colleague on a secretly filmed video about how she thought the Giuffre interview was scraped to due to royal pressure.

“I’ve had this interview with Virginia Roberts. We would not put it on the air,” she could be heard saying. “First of all, I was told, ‘Who’s Jeffrey Epstein?’ … Then the palace found out that we had her whole allegations about Prince Andrew and threatened us a million different ways. … We were so afraid we wouldn’t be able to interview Kate and Will, so I think that had also quashed the story.”

Clearly frustrated, Robach added: “[Virginia] told me everything … She was in hiding for 12 years, we convinced her to come out. We convinced her to talk to us.”

Robach also said that Giuffre connected Bill Clinton and Alan Dershowitz to Epstein: “It was unbelievable what we had. Clinton. We had everything. I tried for three years to get it on to no avail.”

Both Dershowitz – Epstein’s lawyer – and Clinton were passengers on Epstein’s private jet, logs show.

Giuffre — who claims she was lent to the firebrand attorney for sex by Epstein —is suing Dershowitz after he publicly denounced her as a “serial perjurer,” a “serial liar” and a “serial prostitute.”

ABC said in a statement, “At the time, not all of our reporting met our standards to air, but we have never stopped investigating the story. Ever since we’ve had a team on this investigation and substantial resources dedicated to it. That work has led to a two-hour documentary and a 6-part podcast that will air in the new year.”

Robach, who also co-anchors 󈬄/20”, said in her statement released Tuesday that she didn’t expect her comments to air, adding: “As a journalist, as the Epstein story continued to unfold last summer, I was caught in a private moment of frustration. I was upset that an important interview I had conducted with Virginia Roberts didn’t air because we could not obtain sufficient corroborating evidence to meet ABC’s editorial standards about her allegations. My comments about Prince Andrew and her allegation that she had seen Bill Clinton on Epstein’s private island were in reference to what Virginia Roberts said in that interview in 2015. I was referencing her allegations — not what ABC News had verified through our reporting.”

Robach continued, “The interview itself, while I was disappointed it didn’t air, didn’t meet our standards. In the years since no one ever told me or the team to stop reporting on Jeffrey Epstein, and we have continued to aggressively pursue this important story.”

In an interview with NPR in August, Giuffre said she was confused about why her 2015 interview with ABC was not broadcast. “I viewed the ABC interview as a potential game-changer,” she said.

“Appearing on ABC with its wide viewership would have been the first time for me to speak out against the government for basically looking the other way and to describe the anger and betrayal victims felt.”

Dershowitz told NPR that he pressed ABC not to publish the interview.

The Robach incident comes after Ronan Farrow alleged that NBC news chief refused to air his reporting on the Harvey Weinstein scandal after the disgraced movie boss complained to bosses.

Project Veritas said on Tuesday that the Robach video was provided by “an ABC insider.”

An ABC source stressed the network continually reported on Epstein before and after Robach’s interview with Giuffre.


Matt James and Rachael Kirkconnell are back together, but he's 'hesitant'

ABC bosses are battling to deal with the fallout from comments made by “Good Morning America” reporter Amy Robach, who was caught on a hot mic claiming network brass scrapped her interview with a Jeffrey Epstein accuser to appease the royal family.

The “GMA” reporter could be heard complaining that she spent three years trying to get the interview with Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who alleges she was forced to sleep with Prince Andrew while she was kept as Epstein’s sex slave, on air.

ABC news chiefs swiftly moved on Tuesday to have Robach issue a statement, in which she backtracked on her initial claims.

Ever since we’ve had a team on this investigation and substantial resources dedicated to it. That work has led to a two-hour documentary and a 6-part podcast that will air in the new year.”

Robach, who also co-anchors 󈬄/20”, said in her statement released Tuesday that she didn’t expect her comments to air, adding: “As a journalist, as the Epstein story continued to unfold last summer, I was caught in a private moment of frustration. I was upset that an important interview I had conducted with Virginia Roberts didn’t air because we could not obtain sufficient corroborating evidence to meet ABC’s editorial standards about her allegations. My comments about Prince Andrew and her allegation that she had seen Bill Clinton on Epstein’s private island were in reference to what Virginia Roberts said in that interview in 2015. I was referencing her allegations — not what ABC News had verified through our reporting.”

Robach continued, “The interview itself, while I was disappointed it didn’t air, didn’t meet our standards. In the years since no one ever told me or the team to stop reporting on Jeffrey Epstein, and we have continued to aggressively pursue this important story.”

In an interview with NPR in August, Giuffre said she was confused about why her 2015 interview with ABC was not broadcast. “I viewed the ABC interview as a potential game-changer,” she said.

“Appearing on ABC with its wide viewership would have been the first time for me to speak out against the government for basically looking the other way and to describe the anger and betrayal victims felt.”

Dershowitz told NPR that he pressed ABC not to publish the interview.

The Robach incident comes after Ronan Farrow alleged that NBC news chief refused to air his reporting on the Harvey Weinstein scandal after the disgraced movie boss complained to bosses.

Project Veritas said on Tuesday that the Robach video was provided by “an ABC insider.”

An ABC source stressed the network continually reported on Epstein before and after Robach’s interview with Giuffre.
